The research environment in History has benefited from significant investment over the past decade or so. Nine new appointments have been made in subjects ranging from medieval Scottish History to modern European, Asian and African history, the history of medicine/health and oral history.
Major research grants have been awarded to members of staff by the ESRC, the AHRC, the British Academy, the Leverhulme Trust and the Wellcome Trust. Historians at Strathclyde have published with prestigious academic presses such as Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press and Yale University Press and been shortlisted for prizes such as the Longman/History Today Book of the Year Prize and the Whitfield Prize.
Regular meetings organised within History include seminar series in modern European history, health history, Scottish history and oral history and the annual meeting of the Conference on Modern British History for Scotland, Northern Ireland and North Britain. The annual convention of the Society for the Social History of Medicine and the UK Oral History society have recently been organised through History at University of Strathclyde, and a postgraduate summer school in Prague, funded by the Centre for Russian, Central and East European Studies (CRCEES), is scheduled for 2011.
